As Jay-Z once said, after the show it’s the afterparty. And last night at the afterparty for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, this week’s MTV PUSH Artist Miike Snow performed a sweet five-song set under the L.A. sky.
With the production talents of Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg (aka Bloodshy & Avant) and Andrew Wyatt’s dreamy vocals, Miike Snow’s music is a dense and atmospheric listening experience. So it’s fascinating to see how perfectly the songs translate live. Miike Snow fills out a bit onstage, with a grip of additional live players adjusting nobs, playing drums, tinkling keyboards and bringing their sound to life. It’s especially impressive to see the band build and add layers to its live version of “Burial.”
